Obama with Slight Lead in Iowa

 By: leip (I-NY) on 2012-11-03 @ 22:34:04

If the election for president were held today and
the candidates were Barack Obama for the Democrats and
Mitt Romney for the Republicans, for whom would you vote -- Barack Obama or Mitt Romney or for someone else?

(If already voted:) For whom did you vote -- Barack Obama, Mitt Romney or for someone else? (If not sure:) Do you just not want to tell or do you not remember? (If no candidate was named:) Toward which candidate would you say you are leaning, or support the most? (If not sure:) Is there one candidate you favor just a little more?

About this Poll
The Iowa Poll, conducted Oct. 30 to Nov. 2 for The Des Moines Register by Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, is based on interviews with 925 Iowans ages 18 or older. Interviewers contacted households with randomly selected landline and cell phone numbers. Responses were adjusted by age and sex to reflect the general population based on recent Census data.

Questions based on a subsample of 800 likely voters have a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. This means that if this survey were repeated using the same questions and the same methodology, 19 times out of 20, the findings would not vary from the percentages shown here by more than plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Results based on smaller samples of respondents, such as by gender or age, have a larger margin of error.

To qualify as likely Iowa voters, respondents had to say they live in Iowa and will definitely vote or have already voted in the November 2012 general election.
